Adelaide: My opinion of adoption fairs

Adelaide

I need a hug.  I was adopted when I was a young kitten, but after about a year my human parents divorced, and nobody wanted to care for me.  Fortunately the Fat Cat people said they'd love me and took me back.  I'm currently in a wonderful foster home, where I get lots of TLC.

I am very affectionate and love being petted when you get home. I especially love to snuggle on your lap.   I am very gentle with children and love to play with other cats.  I love hiding under cardboard boxes and chasing pens. When people come back after being away for any amount of time I become a purr-box and demand to be petted and played with. I am also fascinated by mirrors and computer screens. I'm usually very quiet, but I do have a gentle mew when I have something to say.

Pick me!

Cassie

Cassie

Hi, my name is Cassie!  My sister Chloe Samantha  -- Sammy to me! -- and I were surrendered to a local shelter when we were about seven weeks old.  We were thin and hungry and loaded with fleas, and needed TLC.  The Fat Cat people saw our pictures and knew they could find us good homes, so they took us and put us in one of their foster homes, where we've been for about a month.  We're now nice and chubby and healthy, and ready to go to a new home!  I am a very friendly little fella with cream colored fur and beautiful Snowshoe markings.  I love to be held, and I like to jump up to my foster mom’s lap for a cuddle. 

Come and meet me!

Chloe Samantha

Chloe Samantha

Hi!  My name is Chloe Samantha -- but everybody calls me Sammy. 
My brother Cassie and I were surrendered to a local shelter when we were about seven weeks old.  We were thin and hungry and loaded with fleas, and needed TLC.  The Fat Cat people saw our pictures and knew they could find us good homes, so they took us and put us in one of their foster homes, where we've been for about a month.  We're now nice and chubby and healthy, and ready to go to a new home!
 
I may look like an all-black kitten to you, but when you take a closer look, you’ll see an unusual tabby pattern in my fur -- the Fat Cat people call me a stealth tabby.  I love to run around and play with my brother Cassie.  My favorite toy is a red foam ball that I carry around so that Cassie can't get it!  When my foster mom picks me up for some extra cuddling, I like to close my eyes and purr my little heart out. 
 
Will you take me home?

Ella: What's up?

Ella

We were surrendered to a local shelter when we were about 6 weeks old.  We weren't very happy to be in the shelter -- we were scared and frightened and missed our mom --  and the shelter staff determined that we weren't "adoption candidates."  They placed us on a "special needs list" -- in other words, if a rescue group didn't take us, we were goners.  Fortunately the Fat Cat people saw our photos and knew we'd settle down once we were out of the shelter and got lots of love and attention.

I am quiet, affectionate, and super cute -- and modest too!  I'm a little shy, but once I warm up to you, I  start purring right away when you pick me up or pet me.  I love to be picked up, have my chin scratched, and have my belly gently patted.  One of the cute things I do is roll around on the floor until you come pay attention to me! I also love playing with my sister and, of course, sitting in boxes (it's such a cat thing to do).  Both my sister and me must have some Siamese blood, because we both have the long, narrow face of a Siamese.

I still haven't figured out how those laptop screens work, so I love sitting by my foster mom while she works on her computer. Maybe one day, I'll be able to catch the mouse on the screen.  I hope I can find a forever home soon.

Pick me!

John Mark

John Mark

I was named in honor of John and Mark, two firemen who rescued my brother from a storm drain. John and Mark were big guys, and they spent alot of time down in the big pipes trying to figure out where my brother Shannon was, and trying to coax him along (he wouldn't have any of it). Boy were they brave! They're my heroes! Shannon was named after the captain, a lady named Shannon.

We were adopted by a young couple as kittens, and they returned us to Fat Cat Rescue after 8 YEARS.  Yup, you got that right.  Our family (which included 3 young children by this time) was moving to Iowa, and they didn't want the trouble of taking us with them.  The Fat Cat people gladly took us back and cared for us and loved us.  It took us months to adjust to being in a new home -- especially me.  I was grumpy and growly and really hated being away from my family.  But Shannon and I are doing great now.

My brother and I recently went to the vet's for a checkup, and I'm healthy.  Shannon has a heart murmur.  We are brother and pals, and it would be great if we could go to a home together.  We realize that may not be possible, and we need to be flexible.  Anyway, I'm a little shy, and I don't like having my toenails clipped.  Other than that I don't have any vices.  Except maybe food.  I love to eat and the doctor suggested I lose some weight.

Nellie

Nellie

Hi! My name is Nellie, and the Fat Cat people rescued me from downtown Los Altos when I was a tiny kitten.  I was adopted by a couple, but they lost their home and surrendered me to a local shelter.  Fortunately I was microchipped, and the shelter staff traced the chip to the Fat Cat people, who quickly came to the shelter and took me home.

I was a bit traumatized by all that, and so need a quiet home.  I'm very sensitive and affectionate and sweet, and will gladly talk to you when you call my name or talk to me.  I'm very gentle, too.  I'd do best in a home without other cats, so that I can get lots of TLC.  I'm very beautiful, and have long, beautiful fur, but I don't need any brushing -- I'm self-cleaning!

Shannon

Shannon

Now I know you've probably heard some hard-luck stories, but you won't believe my story. I was rescued from a storm drain when I was a kitten! Yup! You see, I was minding my own business and all of a sudden WHOOSH! I fell down a storm drain alongside a street. Lucky for me there wasn't any water in there. Anyway, I cried and cried and some people heard me and called the Fat Cat people, who called the fire department and lo and behold they arrived in their big white truck. The firemen were named John and Mark, and their captain was a lady named Shannon. Captain Shannon got into the drain and pulled me out. I was named in her honor, because she plucked me from the drain and saved my life. My brother, John Mark, was named in honor of John and Mark.

We were adopted by a young couple as kittens, and they returned us to Fat Cat Rescue after 8 YEARS.  Yup, you got that right.  Our family (which included 3 young children by this time) was moving to Iowa, and they didn't want the trouble of taking us with them.  The Fat Cat people gladly took us back and cared for us and loved us.  It took us months to adjust to being in a new home.  But me and John Mark are doing great now.

John Mark and I recently went to the vet's for a check up, and found out that I have a heart murmur.  The doctor doesn't know if will get worse or not, and I don't have any problems now, and besides, there isn't anything they can do about it anyway.  Whoever adopts me will just have to love me the way I am.  The Fat Cat people are convinced it's because I have such a big heart and am such a sweetheart!

Trooper

Trooper

Hi! My name is Trooper! I am a great BIG (and I mean BIG) tabby with soft brown fur, beautiful green eyes, and a love for climbing into people’s laps.

My siblings and I were born in a wood pile, and I was adopted as a kitten.  I came back to the Fat Cat people about five years later, so I'm looking for another home and a new someone to love me.  Even though I did not expect to find myself in need of another forever home, I have adjusted amazingly well to my new foster home.

I love to be around people and get along great with other cats.  My area of expertise is giving friendly, loving bumps on my foster mom’s leg to say “Thanks for feeding me!”, “Welcome home!”, or “I love you!”  I like to make eye contact and talk to you (I've lots of opinions!) and jump in your lap for a snuggle -- sometimes my foster mom has a difficult time getting me out of her lap!

One of my favorite things to do is lie in a sunbeam and hang out with my foster mom.  All I need is someone to devote my heart to - I have lots of love to give.

Won’t you take me home?

Violet AKA Banana

Violet AKA Banana

Hi!  My name's Violet, but my foster family call me Banana, maybe because they think I'm bananas!  I'm just a kitten, and a very sweet one at that.  I was born outdoors to a mama cat that had been abandoned, and me and my sisters were picked up by the Fat Cat people when we were quite young.  I've been with people and other cats, and I'm really easygoing and affectionate.  I love to play -- hey I'm a kitten! -- and start to purr the moment you pick me up.  I'm a keeper!

I love giving kitty kisses and grooming you. One of my favorite toys is Mrs. Monkey, my arch nemesis. I also like to play fetch! Fat Cat thinks I may have some Siamese in me because of the shape of my face, but my fosters think it's because I'm a vocal and very smart kitty.

In case you didn't know, it's tough to find homes for black cats, maybe because people don't thnk we are pretty.  But the Fat Cat people think God gives black cats wonderful personalities to compensate!

Pick me!
